Discover Health Chiropractic – Balance through Whole Health Chiropractic Care

“Chiropractic is bigger than back pain; it’s about your whole health: it’s about addressing the cause of disease and dysfunction and restoring your health.”

As a proponent of specific upper cervical chiropractic care, Dr. Plancich emphasizes the importance of achieving and maintaining optimal health through a properly functioning nervous system.

Her clinical emphasis revolves around neurological function and how it relates to the alignment of the upper neck. Specifically, Dr. Plancich focuses on a highly advanced procedure that is gentle and extremely precise, called NUCCA.

NUCCA focuses on the first vertebrae in the neck and is designed to restore balance to the entire spine. This procedure influences one of the highest control centers over body balance, the brain stem, and central nervous system. The NUCCA procedure aligns the C-1 vertebra, or Atlas, which is a small ring-like bone located at the top of the spine and the base of the skull that surrounds the brain stem. When the spine is subjected to stress, it can become misaligned beginning at the Atlas vertebrae. It then compensates for the misalignment of the head and neck by moving and twisting the rest of the spine out of its normal position.

This misalignment has a global effect on the body. When the head and neck are not balanced, then the rest of the body will compensate causing posture distortion.  This shift causes stress and miscommunication affecting posture control centers, and can ultimately impact sleep, mood, immune function, digestion, and more.

The NUCCA procedure utilized at Discover Health Chiropractic places great importance on correcting the cause of body imbalance rather than just treating your symptoms. NUCCA care emphasizes spinal correction and stability for long term results.
